This oreo filling is one of my most requested when it comes to cakes and cupcakes. It’s also a recipe that I’ve been promising to post for ages and I just always forget to snap some good pics! So I finally made it, I measured all of my ingredients (I don’t always measure everything), I tested it (of course) and now I’m sharing!
So, if you love Oreo cookies and cream, you’re going to love this too. Now that happens because let’s face the facts: what’s the best part of these cookies? Of course, is all about the feeling! Therefore, why move the cream layer from one cookie to another (I already know that a lot of you do that), when you’ll know how to cook it by yourself! Additionally, it’s such a simple process that you won’t believe it!
Oreo Cookie and Cream Filling
Another interesting fact about this filling recipe is that you can use it to improve all your cakes and even cupcakes. Personally, I’ve used it to fill both chocolate and vanilla cakes. Moreover, I like to pair it with cream cheese frosting, but vanilla or chocolate work well too!
Believe me, at first you’ll need to eat it by itself, without any cake or cream. Considering that the ratio of cookie to cream from the Oreo cookies is already too small, it’s understandable to save a little only to yourself.
However, this decision remains yours! My purpose here is just to teach you how to prepare the oreo filling! So, let’s do it together!
Ingredients for Oreo Filling
These are all the ingredients you’ll need in order to achieve the same result as mine. Of course, you can improvise where necessary, but I would advise you to follow this list. Even though it is a simple recipe it is really easy to ruin it too.
- 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature (takes about 2 hours to reach room temp)
- 4 oz. salted butter, at room temperature (1 stick)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 12 crushed Double Stuf Oreos (I do mine in a food processor), or any chocolate sandwich cookie will work!
- 1-2 tablespoons heavy cream, as needed
How To Make the Oreo Filling for Your Cakes?
Finally, let’s move on to the process of preparing this amazing filling. Don’t worry: the kitchen tools are what you would use for any filling. So, just follow these four steps and the result will be incredibly delicious.
- Cream together the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until smooth.
- Mix in the powdered sugar until smooth.
- Fold in the crushed cookies.
- Use immediately to fill cakes or cupcakes or refrigerate until ready to use. If you refrigerate it, it will thicken. So, use 1-2 tablespoons of heavy cream to thin it again to a good consistency for filling!
Cakes and cupcakes that are filled with Oreo filling should be refrigerated until time to serve!
All in all, wasn’t that a so simple recipe? And the taste is just mmmm, AMAZING! If I’d be totally honest with you, I find it even better than the original.
However, that’s because when you cook the filling yourself, you can taste it in the process and add whatever you prefer. As an example, one of my best friends likes to add a lot more vanilla and some orange essence. Even though the oreo cookie and cream taste are not so profound anymore, she prefers it that way. And that’s totally fine!
So, keep in mind that as long as you do you and the result is satisfactory, you did an amazing job!
